Atlassian Introducing Point A, “where good ideas become amazing products”

Provide candid feedback to our teams, and help build tools shaping the future of teamwork.

Get early access:

– Jira Work Management

With Jira Work Management, business teams will be able to move forward together with a single place to track, coordinate, and manage all aspects of their work with structure and consistency. With new functionality built for the unique needs of non-technical users, Jira Work Management enables teams such as marketing, HR, finance, and design to manage their projects and connect with their technical counterparts. With Jira as the backbone, work flows seamlessly across the organization. Jira Work Management is generally available today.

– Jira Product Discovery ALPHA

A new product management tool for agile teams. Jira Product Discovery helps product managers build what matters by serving as the place to capture insights and opportunities, prioritize impact, and engage teams around product plans. Jira Product Discovery is available as an early access alpha release today.

– Team Central

Team Central is the new organization’s connective tissue, helping teams connect and communicate progress as frequently and frictionless as modern work demands. It enables teams to create an organized home where they can track goals and share status updates. Team Central also provides a methodology that fosters a culture of openness, which enables teams to make more rapid progress against their goals. Team Central is available as a beta release today.

– Compass

Gives software development teams a bird’s eye view of the digital services across their organization, connecting engineering output with the teams that support it in a single, trusted place. Through Compass, development teams can manage the sprawl resulting from distributed architectures, improve their processes, and adopt better ways of working together. Compass will be available as an early access alpha release this week.

– Halp

Halp, a recently acquired product, is a modern ticketing help desk that seamlessly integrates with Slack and Microsoft teams, making request management conversational and delightful for everyone throughout an organization. It fits naturally with faster, more informal styles of managing internal requests, adding just the right amount of process to keep teams in sync and work flowing. Halp is available today.

Atlassian products updates.

– Open DevOps, Cloud

Open DevOps is a development experience built on Jira that makes a diverse development toolchain feel like an all-in-one. Software development teams need the best tools and technology to do their jobs well, and for many teams that means using tools from different vendors that aren’t well connected. Rather than taking on the complexity of integrating their favorite tools, development teams should focus on shipping value to their customers. The new pre-configured Jira project called “Open DevOps” combines Atlassian products and leading partner offerings, such as GitHub and GitLab. The tools in Open DevOps are automatically connected and ready to help customers take their idea from backlog to operational code.
